Acoustic disturbance at ionospheric heights caused by the MILL RACE explosion

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The principal objective of the Los Alamos National Laboratory in the MILL RACE experiment was to measure the over-head ionospheric response due to the MILL RACE explosion. Such a measurement enables one to test computer models designed to quantitatively predict ionospheric disturbances caused by known sources. The emphasis of the models has been directed at calculating effects on rf propagation associated with the predicted ionospheric disturbances. Consequently vertical incidence phase sounding measurements of a well-characterized source provide a direct and sensitive test of the computer models and, for this reason, a vertical incidence phase sounder was located 3300 meters to ... continued below

Description

The principal objective of the Los Alamos National Laboratory in the MILL RACE experiment was to measure the over-head ionospheric response due to the MILL RACE explosion. Such a measurement enables one to test computer models designed to quantitatively predict ionospheric disturbances caused by known sources. The emphasis of the models has been directed at calculating effects on rf propagation associated with the predicted ionospheric disturbances. Consequently vertical incidence phase sounding measurements of a well-characterized source provide a direct and sensitive test of the computer models and, for this reason, a vertical incidence phase sounder was located 3300 meters to the west of the MILL RACE ground zero. Another area of interest is the development of an understanding of the atmospheric response to known sources at distances where the acoustic response no longer dominates. Such an undertaking requires measurements at these remote points. Deployment of a bistatic sounding network enabled the investigation of this area of interest. Results are reported.
